Batman: The Mask of Phantasm

While bored one night I was surfing through Netflix for something to watch. I was pleasantly surprised to find Batman: The Mask of the Phantasm (1993). This entertaining animated movie was part of the Batman: The Animated Series franchise of Warner Brothers. The plot was inspired by Mike W. Barr's Batman: Year Two comic book story arc, but features an original antagonist, the Phantasm, in place of the Reaper.

The opening of Batman: The Mask of the Phantasm is a long beauty shot that travels across the rooftops of Gotham allowing us a great view of the amazing Dark Deco design created for the animated series. It’s truly a sight to behold. For your viewing pleasure I’ve posted a YouTube video of a segment of the opening. Even if you're not a comic book fan, the opening is worth seeing.
